One of my oldest friends invited me to Amsterdam for Queen’s Day this year. On this one day, anyone can sell anything to anyone all over the city. My friend and her husband just bought the lower two levels of their old house (the foundations date back to the 1600s), so I could stay there instead of at a hotel. Their part of the house isn’t a good one for guests, being open plan. It would be great, except business demands that I be in California then for a series of meetings. Duty always wins out over pleasure, it seems.
